film the current ground leader there till mccann seventy should marco resort hotel who sold it to sochi on new maco limo could tell when results much will never be closer to tell mccoy revering to tell the kids since they tell mccown. rosa colored glasses in the rose garden president obama meets his british counterpart to. come on the foreign policy goals concerns grow the two nations are the only ones benefiting from their joint military ventures. with the kickoff for the g eight summit in france drawing near me look at how the group will work to solve the problems seemingly created by its own members. and protesters take to the streets of the georgian capital for a fifth day at the mining and the role of some cash really that they call undemocratic and.
10:01 am
live from the center of moscow right this is artsy welcome to the program now the u.s. president and the u.k. prime minister used to that joint speech in london to once again pressure the libyan leader to go once again showing that special friendship with the office who english speaking nations is particularly relevant when it comes to conflicts on foreign soil he's a lawyer and it has more from mine. again david cameron said during this news conference very categorically gadhafi must go but as i say they are still insisting that they're complying with the u.n. resolution they talk about it's an awful lot they have cited in everything they say but in the same sentence both these leaders are reiterating the need as they see it for me to go so it's difficult to weigh on those two seemingly very different viewpoints. the very least it was necessary to disable gadhafi
10:02 am
capacity to attack his own civilians and then of course there's the issue of moving him from power and possibly targeting him directly but what they're saying is that it's impossible to comply with the resolution to protect civilians if indeed gadhafi is still in power so that's how they're justifying it but many of course are saying that this is a clear case of regime change another interesting thing that happened was a slight disagreement that appeared to unfold despite this very carefully orchestrated news conference david cameron talked about turning up the heat in libya and he need leave dodge the question about whether they would be sending helicopters apache helicopters into fight closer to the ground as we reported in the media yesterday on the refused to commit to turning up the feet and in fact he talked about maintaining that the momentum that they had already built up and saying that that was enough to force the sooner or later to leave power so there's
10:03 am
no further commitment from the u.s. in libya there which is something that the head of this visit the u.k. was reported to who wants them to commit to one of the major things that's come out of this visit is this setting up of the joint security border between the u.s. and the u.k. and what that will do is open up the defense and security resources of washington to london and vice versa now some people are saying that's just a formalization of an informal agreement that was already in place. as we see in the u.k. and the u.s. fighting various wars together and using their defense strategy techniques very closely in line with each other but some see that formalization of this working relationship as very dangerous to the rest of the world as my record shows all smiles and handshakes as the u.k. and the us take their special relationship to the next level washington's preparing to open up its highly secretive national security council to london as the two
10:04 am
countries pledged to deal jointly with perceived security and foreign policy challenges with what cost to the rest of the world. i don't think it will change foreign policy in any dramatic way now remember that britain already shares a huge amount of intelligence with the united states in fact britain's nuclear deterrent can actually launch a nuclear missile on its own for in fact what is happening today is largely symbolic the special relationship phrase was a deeply tested one when blair was in power and his relationship with bush was seen in britain to be much more one of a poodle rather than a partner and yes in a sense it will be sky's unpopular was. not everyone welcomes president obama's presence in the u.k. a range of groups are using it as an opportunity to demonstrate against what they see as the anglo-saxon who are machine and islamist fringe organizations linked
10:05 am
aggressive foreign policy led by the us in the u.k. supported variously by finance and other nato allies with terror attacks there's a real tricky places to go since a lesson until they leave they stop supporting the dictators the muslim countries torturing us supposing the car started his role. models you know. the u.s. and u.k. have been involved in two major wars in the last ten years in both iraq and afghanistan america persuaded britain to come in with the reinforcing britain's reputation as the us is lap dog. but this time it's different in libya it's britain taking the lead in nato with the us keen to keep its role to a minimum a deepening of cooperation between the two is something this group of demonstrators abatement objects to these are the cars go through the first the are starting to
10:06 am
see to libya. three major wars. turn yes there's got to be bad news for those of us who want peace in the world to see those two cars corporation both closely triffitt outside buckingham palace where obama is staying these protesters are trying to persuade him and push prime minister cameron to stop waging war in four announced so far it hasn't worked i thought and cameron we you know i see it in their intention to increase pressure on colonel gadhafi in libya. and this demonstration come. late since involvement in the war in libya france's says it will deploy helicopters bringing fighting closer to the ground the global goal machine grumbles though with the alliance of london and washington in the engine room and this new agreement still cool information and resources may only adds fuel to the fire your avatar. meanwhile nato
10:07 am
has pounded more targets in the libyan capital tripoli after its heaviest attack since the campaign began some two months ago state t.v. says of the airstrikes including one called peace a compound killed nineteen people and injured one hundred fifty others the u.s. has also invited the rebels transitional council to open an office in washington marking a new step towards recognizing them as the country's official representatives robert naiman from the u.s. based just foreign policy think tank says that the us and its allies are waging an illegal war dressed up as a humanitarian mission. he's been bombing libya demolished by. so it's a war you supporter or oppose it it's still insists it's illegal under united states law and this is being openly said in the united states it's never been authorized by congress but there is now a vote finally exploded in the house in the next three days on an amended by
10:08 am
representative conyers that would explicitly prohibit the introduction of and u.s. ground troops to libya will attempt by some members of congress to put zone perimeter on what the what the u.s. means you heard a lot of rhetoric about human rights in libya because france britain and the u.s. wanted me in the case of libya war it was really britain and france they were pushing aggressively for action much more so in the united see i do think we all have to be you know keep our eyes focused on the actual policy and there's always a special relationship of course the issue is not whether we want u.s. and britain to cooperate i certainly do is cooperate to do was so if the if there is special relationship means cooperate and do bad things then it's not in the interest of the majority of people in either country. well you are going to use could have a company today and still ahead for you a new battlefield you know the middle east conflict look at how israelis and
10:09 am
palestinians accuse each other of distorting historical facts and we can give you. this path leads to mountain house walk through three centuries was the funniest biography and it's possible terms of the development of the country's history people come to visit and talk to him and today madame it doesn't read to share some of his secrets to a long life without. just trying ten minutes past the hour now here in moscow and it's just one day to go before the g eight summit kicks off in the french resort of dover you know the meeting will be hosted by nicolas sarkozy and his country holds the presidency of the group this year and i thought he was and you see now reports from france that under his leadership france and sarkozy played a leading role in causing the problems the summit is aiming to solve. the g. eight has gone full circle the last time the summit was held in france eight years ago the agenda looked almost the same. war the economy somewhere in the
10:10 am
middle eight africa on the table then iraq and boosting the euro now it's libya and saving the euro. two thousand and three france had a very different stance on global politics then it was staunchly opposed to the u.s. invasion of iraq french fries quickly became freedom fries after france u.s. relations soured despite summit smiles but with a new french president came a new friend turkey was a has rejected entirely the path of goody a friend playing a constructive role in a multi multi polar world and has aligned himself with the single superpower the united states nowadays france is barking much louder with more soldiers involved in foreign military conflicts of brawn then ever before it's a globalist modern. it's not just the friends it's
10:11 am
a whole. global plan to change governments as they want. france played a central role in ivory coast's bloody presidential stalemate and is considered the unspoken leader of the intervention in libya this great sarkozy wanted his to participate and to be one of the first. ruler western ruler to go there and just for his political agenda critics say this new global policy was meant to win over french voters but hasn't worked france is a kind of small united states with many interventions that are very costly and very little thinking about the relationship between rhetoric and the cost. and cost is the killer european countries are facing more and more protest over huge spending cuts in an attempt to lower tariffs and fits and save
10:12 am
a drowning euro sex scandal involving i.m.f. had done an extra one might have knock out a top contender competing against sarkozy for the presidency but experts say g.e.'s k. was toppled at the wrong time when you've still got worries about whether the euro will still be the currency of all these european countries in the next twelve to twenty four months and at the same time spending hundreds of millions forcing their way into the libyan conflict they don't see eye to eye but they going to try to regroup around. the idea that it's a humanitarian intervention and the u.n. resolution a resolution that china and russia didn't veto but have claimed has been manipulated to suit western interests perhaps there will be an appearance of agreement but if there is an appearance of agreement in my mind it won't be an appearance appearance at the g.
10:13 am
eight is hard not to notice the venue is usually some exclusive resort town where you can't hear protest over the euro and it's easy to forget bombs are falling in libya this year france is beautiful normandy was chosen to house leaders as they sit down to debate some of the world's ugliest problems and once again are faced with the question of whether the g eight can regroup on splitting its years and he's now a r t the movie fronts. and of course we'll bring you extensive coverage of the today g eight summit as well as the expert analysis of the event and the issues discuss all of that right here on our team. now turning our attention to georgia where thousands of opposition supporters are into the fifth straight day of protests against the government there demanding an end to state sanctioned corruption and the resignation of president mikheil saakashvili who they accuse of abusing his position to maintain power parties at surface details from tbilisi. well the day of praise might being cancelled the peace process is still angry can

10:17 am
another battle is raging online both sides claim that one of the world's most popular websites that if we can it's rewriting the history of the conflict i thought it was a poll or a report this fight is far from coal. the israeli palestinian conflict has reached an unlikely a new field of battle where there are no borders and no generals calling the shots there is no facts. like fact checking or a committee or something like that there is no chief editor or anything like that which is why we can pedia an online encyclopedia is one of the world's most popular websites with sixteen million entries open for anyone to edit rewrite or even to raise the most popular of those pages and middle east there is an article i think practically about any village or palestinian village that was destroyed during forty eight war there's a really deep independence war and there are i think articles about any military
10:18 am
operation that. launched during the history of the conflict both israelis and palestinians complain this side of the story is not properly covered propaganda is putting a label on israel and calling us apartheid state we fight by bringing the actual facts where israel is the most progressive democracy in the middle east and for that matter the only democracy in the middle east and that's why not you should cancel their representatives really secular movement has been organizing workshops to teach people how to post revise and even rewrite some of the most disputed pages on line this disagreement on terminology such as the word occupation and history of what happened in certain conflicts even the names of certain cities and towns what we do is we monitor our various media outlets and when we see for example that a certain media outlet calls israel an apartheid state then we send our people to engage in discussion and to give the facts but the palestinians have lists people
10:19 am
to send in which is why the battlefield is not equal according to others are not so we head for the association of palestinian journalists he says he wishes he had the kind of cash the israelis had to train palestinians to. brush up on the knowledge of we completely and there's a big expansion in the israeli palestinian conflict will be forced on the pages of wiki pedia these really control the online media they control words like terrorists islamic jihad we need trainers and finance to get it and interpret we p.d.f. as well but these were completely experts say it has nothing to do with training and everything to do with the truth i think people should stick to the truth and not try to learn how to put of their point of view in the wikipedia article i mean if you have sources just bring them on but in this wall every bush of ammunition counts it's no secret that the revolutions sweeping the arab world found their support online hundreds of thousands of people signed up on
